Errigal - Donegal’s Highest Mountain
Errigal is a graceful quartzite cone, which at 2466ft/751m, is Donegal’s highest mountain. Climbing Errigal should take about four and a half hours, but the time for descent depends on people’s ability to walk on the loose rocks.

Sliabh Liag / Slieve League
Regarded as being the highest sea cliffs in Europe (756ft), one can access the sea cliffs via the small villages of Carrick and Teelin. The cliff face, extending for about 3km has been carved by the Atlantic to give a variety of shapes and colours. Bunglas is a spectacular place to view the sea cliffs and experienced walkers can spend a day walking from Bunglas, through the somewhat spine-chilling One Man’s Path, to Malinbeg near Glencolumbkille. This is for experienced climbers only but if you’re not fit for that challenge, there are terrific views from the track.
